For many applications, the speed of digital communication is important. Most visibly, ???speed??? is about transferring large files as quickly as possible, or carrying enough data for an HD video. For USB audio (and for HDMI audio), ???speed??? is critical not because of how-much how-fast, but because time relationships within a digital stream are critical to the reconstruction of the analog waveform that brings information, music and joy to our ears. Time-based damage (jitter) to this information within the data package makes the sound small and flat instead of 3D, harsh and foggy instead of smooth and clear. AudioQuest USB Type-C cables featuring conductor materials and construction techniques that have allowed AQ???s other USB cables to achieve ???Best-In-Class??? recognition worldwide.With the newer USB Type-C connector quickly becoming commonplace on many devices, AQ???s line of Type-C equipped USB cables will allow users to connect with Type-C enabled devices such as MacBook, ChromeBook, Pixel, Galaxy Note 7, etc. In addition, ALL of AudioQuest???s USB cables incorporate a newly developed strain-relief system to provide robust durability between the USB cable and plug.SOLID 5% SILVER CONDUCTORSSolid conductors eliminate strand-interaction distortion and reduce jitter. Solid silver-plated conductors are excellent for very high-frequency applications, like HDMI audio and video. These signals, being such a high frequency, travel almost exclusively on the surface of the conductor. As the surface is made of high-purity silver, the performance is very close to that of a solid silver cable, but priced much closer to solid copper cable. This is an incredibly cost effective way of manufacturing very high-quality HDMI cables.MULTI-LAYER CARBON-BASED NOISE- AND CROSSTALK-DISSIPATION SYSTEMThis cable's negative conductors are covered with partially conductive Carbon-Loaded Polyethylene. This remarkable material reduces radio-frequency garbage being fed back into the amplifier. The sonic benefit is exactly the same reduction in "hash" and improved dimensionality that comes whenever RF interference is reduced in an audio circuit. In addition, a carbon layer damps interaction between positive and negative conductors, and an external Carbon-Based NDS System reduces external interference.DIRECTIONALITYAll drawn metal strands or conductors have a non-symmetrical, and therefore directional, grain structure. AudioQuest controls the resulting RF impedance variation so that noise is drained away from where it will cause distortion. The correct direction is determined by listening to every batch of metal conductors used in every AudioQuest audio cable. Arrows are clearly marked on the connectors to ensure superior sound quality.Item may contain chemicals known to the state of California to cause cancer and reproductive toxicity.
